|Assorted purchases from Saturday's 'Bring and Buy'.|
|Asiatic figures that might well be recruited into the |
Army of Turcowaz.
|Nassauers - my most expensive purchase. But they would|
have cost a heap more new!
I had just offered to buy this cheaply priced edifice. As I handed over the assortment of coins by way of payment, he says:
'You recognised it didn't you?'
'No...' I began, but then, 'Well, yes, actually. It's a building.'
Quickness of wit is not my long suit.
'Seminary building at Gettysburg.' he says.
'Why, so it is...!'
I actually bought it as a useful generic CBD building. It will remain a useful generic CBD building.
The green and yellow guys were being sold as Nassauers, and so they shall remain, though most of them are Minifigs French line infantry figures. Minifigs do specifically Nassauer figures, but as they are very similar to the French, it makes (to my mind) little difference. They'll go to my 'Portable Waterloo' project...
|16 carrier aircraft from a Tamiya USS Enterprise kit...|
and a Curtiss SBC Helldiver biplane in progress...
Finally: this assorted bunch of trailers and jeeps. One can never have too many jeeps, though it will be the Russians or British who will get them. The trailers are always useful as logistic elements. One can never have too many trailers.
Overall I spent rather more than I usually do, but I had budgeted for twice as much as I actually spent. Actually, adding it up just now, I discover I spent about $20 less than for some reason I thought I had. I could have bought more, but tend to take a very restrained approach to these sorts of things...
Oh, yes: it being due on Saturday, I renewed my club membership!
